Gandhi Smriti information
This poignant memorial is where Mahatma Gandhi was shot dead by a Hindu zealot on 30 January 1948, after campaigning against intercommunal violence. Concrete footsteps lead to the spot where Gandhi died, marked by a small pavilion.
The adjacent house, where the Mahatma spent his last 144 days, contains rooms preserved as Gandhi left them, plus photographs, paintings and dioramas depicting scenes from Gandhi’s life, set in boxes like 1950s TVs. Upstairs is the interpretative exhibition Eternal Gandhi , with abstract sculptures, curious video displays and sound installations.
In the room where Gandhi lodged, you can see his meagre possessions – not much more than a walking stick, spectacles, a spinning wheel and a pair of chappals (sandals).
